Mental Health QCF

Course Description

Mental Health Awareness QCF

Qualification Number: 500/5515/X

This fully recognised QCF qualification is designed for a broad spectrum of health care workers who would benefit from a greater understanding of Mental Health Awareness issues. The NCC Home Learning Mental Health Awareness QCF covers topics such as understanding mental health, stress, phobias, anxiety, eating disorders, post-natal depression and schizophrenia among others – all conditions labelled under the topic mental health. This qualification has been developed due to popular demand for our Mental Health Certificate.

This course allows you to gain a fully recognised qualification in this subject. QCF qualifications are nationally recognised qualifications which are based on the national framework of qualifications at all levels. Like NVQs they cover the functions of managing activities, people, resources, information, energy and quality. Our aim is to provide you with the best deal available, therefore registration fee, certification fee and full tutor support is included in the course price for you.

This course carries 13 credits on successful completion of the qualification.

Awarding Organisation

Ascentis was originally established in 1975 as OCNW, a co-operative scheme between Universities and Colleges of Further Education. Ascentis was the first "Open College" in the UK and served the needs of its members for over 34 years. Throughout this period, OCNW grew yet maintained its independence in order that it could continue to respond to the requirements of its customers and provide a consistently high standard of service to all centres across the country and in recent years to its increasing cohorts of overseas learners.
